Home Decor- Dollar Store No. Boxes

These boxes I picked up from the Dollar store last year sometime. I had originally painted the boxes with acrylic paint in bleach sand white and the lids in a burgundy barn red. With the color changes going on in the home they needed a face lift.  So they got one. 😉

 

Original form

 AFTER- I stenciled the numbers on with black acrylic paint and card stock paper with the numbers cut out using my Platinum Schoolbook Cricut cartridge.

– new LOOK-

I distressed the boxes on all sides with distress ink in “Walnut Stain”and hot glued jute rope around them in two layers.

 The lid’s got two coats of acrylic gloss Indian Turquoise paint. Then distressed too just like the boxes.

 I used a sponge applicator to push down into the ink pad and then wipe over the wood knob that I hot glued to the top of the No. 1 box.

 
 

I dig the new look much more. Thanks Dollar store, I sure love you for good fun crafting. 

Thanks to you all for stopping by COM. winks-jen
